Quick & Easy Christmas cards....

Hi everyone well i haven't left it has long this time lol. As soon as i saw the Challenge and fab sketch over at the ABC Christmas Challenge i just had to take part and make a dent in all the Christmas cards i have to make this year. The theme is Quick & Easy with the optional extra of following a fabby sketch and making more than one card so here is my take on the sketch:

and here is a close up of just one of the two cards ive made:

I used the Penny Black Fantasy Tree which i just inked up in silver ink the card ive used is pearlised white and silver and i ran the white through the snowflake cuttlebug embossing folder and i have finished off with gems. Its such a fab sketch to follow and i know i will use it again and again for most of my Christmas cards this year.

This cards fits in with the following Challenges:
